Late Night visitor Davion Bradford has pegged Friday as decision day.

Three days after attending KU’s annual season tipoff event at Allen Fieldhouse, the 7-foot center from St. Louis announced on Twitter that he would announce his college choice at 5 p.m. Friday.

Bradford is a three-star prospect ranked No. 133 overall in the 2020 class by

As a junior, Bradford attended Mehlville High in St. Louis and played last summer with the MOKAN AAU program. Prior to that, Bradford played for two other high schools, starting at Christian Brothers College High in St. Louis and transferring to Hillcrest Prep in Arizona for his sophomore season.

Today, a little more than a year after his mother died in a car accident, he’s back at Mehlville for the second season in a row and has zeroed in on several area programs for his potential college destination.

Four analysts, including Eric Bossi, logged their picks for Kansas State on Monday. Bradford also has been tied to Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma State and Tulsa throughout his recruitment.

I think that's where he's headed. And I wouldn't look at it as KU losing him if that happens. He was at Late Night but I don't think KU has prioritized him in any way.

With the MOKAN connection and how good that program has been to Kansas throughout the years, there's no way KU was going to tell him he can't come to Late Night. Happens a lot. A bunch of fringe-type kids and even their friends and teammates come to Late Night even if KU's not pursuing them that hard.

You guys are laughing at this kid. But this is just the type of player KU could redshirt and develop and have for five years. By his Senior year practicing against the caliber of players we have he could be pretty good. Sometimes I think KU shorts itself in this department and when one of our big guys get injured we are left with no defense in the middle. With 13 schollies it shouldnt be too hard to have a third string center that could end up being something. Plus, having a 7 footer on the practice squad helps.

Thanks. I was looking for that information.
